A lively district in Bangkok, Sukhumvit offers plenty of fun adventures for intrepid travellers, be it to enjoy shopping, relaxation, cultural discoveries or surfing. Yes, that’s right, even surfing!
One of the most distinctive malls in the city, Terminal 21 has a unique concept whereby each section is based on a famous world city or area; San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, Tokyo City and an Istanbul souk to name a few. The dining options are just as diverse and here you can easily find a restaurant in Sukhumvit to satisfy those cravings.
Also known as “Queen Park”, this scenic area is perfect for some relaxation or recreation. Located around a 15 minute walk from Maitria Hotel Sukhumvit 18 – A Chatrium Collection, the park features fascinating sculptures as well as varied sports facilities from basketball courts to areas for skateboarding.
If you were intrigued at the beginning of this blog about the prospect of surfing in the city, then this is the place you need to visit! Flow House features a Flowrider machine that creates waves where you can practice surfing. Both kids and adults will love it, plus it’s a great place to cool off too.
